The purpose of this InfoGuide is to recommend sources for the research you conduct in this course.  It is intended as a follow-up from in-class activities, and as an ongoing reference for you as you complete your coursework this semester.

Proxy Authentication

RIT Libraries authenticates access to our electronic resources using a proxy server.  All of the links on this guide will take you through the proxy server, so the best practice is to use this guide to avoid being locked out of a subscribed resource. 

  • If you are searching from on campus and use the links on this guide to access our online resources, this will most likely be seamless and you probably won't have to log in.
  • If you are searching from off campus and use the links on this guide to access our online resources, please log in with your RIT credentials when prompted. Connecting through a VPN will not circumvent the proxy server.
  • If you are authenticated through the proxy server and the full article is still not available to you, scroll down this guide page to IDS Express Interlibrary Loan - you can request a copy of the article.
